General Assembly


As the Legislative Branch of the UPUA, the General Assembly is comprised of elected and appointed members who serve to represent the undergraduate student body at Penn State University Park. Every academic college has one representative elected to represent the students within that college. Additionally, there are 20 At-Large Representatives tasked with acting in the best interest of all undergraduate students. Finally, there are several community group representative seats filled to provide a unique perspective to the UPUA’s General Assembly. The General Assembly researches and writes legislation in Committee, and once passed by the respective committee, the legislation is brought to the floor to be voted on by all members either as a Policy, a Resolution, or a Bill.
